I had the pleasure of attending Comic Con with my son in NY this past weekend. Along with the many characters we passed, we were encouraged to buy a ton of merchandise from t shirts to costumes, dancing dragons, swords and shafts, comic books, posters, and much much more. The highpoint was certainly the people watching. And despite the huge crowds, everyone seemed friendly, happy, and appreciative.
My biggest surprise, that the autograph section was filled with "former" celebrities charging $40 or more. Outrageous. So many great panels. To assure a seat you have to get in line very early. So much to see and do that one day may not be enough to see and do everything. All in all, a wonderful experience.
